HOT WORK PERMIT
Cutting and welding operations (commonly referred to as hot work) are associated with machine shops, maintenance, and construction activities, as well as certain laboratory-related activities, such as torch soldering. Potential health, safety and property hazards result from the fumes, gases, sparks, hot metal and radiant energy produced during hot work. Hot work equipment which may produce high voltages or utilize compressed gases, also requires special awareness and training on the part of the worker to be used safely. The hazards associated with hot work can be reduced through the implementation of the University's Hot Work Permit Program (a.k.a. Welding, Cutting and Brazing Safety Program).
